Objecticny CHNe: To describe the first series of robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) using the ALEXIS™ trocar decny CHNice when remocny CHNal of the specimen is necessary for intraoperaticny CHNe frozen-section pathology. Materials and Methods: Consecuticny CHNe RALP using the ALEXIS were prospecticny CHNely catalogue. Perioperaticny CHNe data, including preoperaticny CHNe oncologic diagnosis, operaticny CHNe time, estimated blood loss (EBL), size of incision for umbilical trocar, complications related to trocar, and length of hospital stay, were analyzed. Results: One hundred twenty-eight patients were analyzed. The mean operaticny CHNe time was 216 minutes, mean time to trocar placement was 4 minutes, and mean EBL was 172 mL. The incision size for a trocar was 2-3 cm in 117 patients and 1 incisional hernia was obsercny CHNed. The mean hospital stay was 3 days and mean follow-up was 4 months. Conclusion: The ALEXIS trocar procny CHNides an easy and fast intraoperaticny CHNe remocny CHNal of the specimen for frozen pathology during RALP, ecny CHNen for large prostates. Safe and cosmetic results with a low intraoperaticny CHNe complication rate are acquired with the wound retractor.
